hi Experts,

We have a 3 server cluster. one of the physical server crashed. We need to get rid of it and add a new server in its place.

What is the safest way to do it?

note that evict is greyed out.

Are there any services still listed on the node?

Look in Hyper-V Manager to confirm that no resources are still listed there despite having failed over to another node in the cluster.

In Failover Cluster Manager:
 + Verify that all CSV and Storage is owned by another node
 + Verify the Cluster Name is owned by another node
